Is it just my `magination????
« on: August 27, 2004, 04:14:00 PM »
I distinctly remember getting confronted in group for refering to Ft. Lauderdale as "Lauderdale". Now, I've thought for years that the world keeps getting a little more program-like every day. It's just hard to put a finger on exactly how, ya know? But it's unmistakable... or maybe it's just my imagination... or maybe it's not.....

 MEANWHILE ...

The ongoing era of hyper political correctness has slain satire. There is  nothing one can concoct -- no matter how asinine, idiotic or stupid -- that  might not spring forth from this plague.

Consider the case of Terrell Jones, a student at Grayson High School in  Georgia's Gwinnett County. Mr. Jones had moved to the area from Hempstead,  N.Y. On Monday, he wore a shirt celebrating his hometown with the words  "Hempstead, NY 516."

The 516 refers to the Long Island town's area code.

Alas, Mr. Jones was escorted from class at some point during the school  day. An eagle-eyed administrator who apparently flunked geography spotted  the shirt and thought it referred to marijuana.

Not until Mr. Jones persuaded school officials to search the Internet for  the New York town's name did they allow him to return to his studies.

"It's important to remember that the vigilance of our administrators is  important," said a spokeswoman for the Gwinnett County schools, who  deserves a raise.

It's a good thing the young Jones didn't hail from Intercourse, Pa.

I think this should go in the "Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse" category.

And what's up with the confrontation for referring to Ft. Lauderdale as Lauderdale? What's that all about?

I wasn't "actually" in Straight Inc. either.  So?

Yes Carmel, I was accused of trying to sneak a little druggieslan into the rap. I actually got off of the charges by pointing out that Lauderdale was somebody's last name, Ft. Lauderdale is named after a fort named after them and that the cities of Lauderdale Lakes and Lauderdale By The Sea were not named by druggies. (or something to that effect)

BTW, I have a t-shirt w/ a big read heart on it that says, in big letters, "I Love Weed" and then, in smaller print underneath, ",California". Once in awhile, I'll wear it around town (either intentionally or not; sometimes I just forget what I'm wearing when I go out to run errands) Some people around here love it, some really, really don't! I'm guessing the local school would probably try and make an issue of it if a student were to wear it to class. Maybe one day I'll see if any of my kids' friends are interested in a little experiment.

Life is like a bird, at any given moment it is droping a load. It is only a matter of time before one eventually find you.
